Does anyone know what happened to this guy? I remember in the early 80's he was setting records everywhere.

I haven't heard much about him in a long time. His highest record fell all the way down to #29 last time I checked... Anyone else have any info on this guy?

I am Bill Beckums daughter! My dad had his store, the Bait Barge, until he retired and moved to Tillamook Oregon a few years back. He did guided fishing trips for many professional athletes as well as guided wild boar hunts in King City, California. Dad moved north to enjoy fishing for wild salmon and elk hunting. He is currently 73 and battling cancer. He still takes time to drive down the coast to the casino or go to garage sales on his good days. I sure wish there was a copy I could find of him on a fishing program he did in the early 80's. Thanks for asking about him :)

Hi Coronadeb, Sorry to hear your dad is in a battle right now. We'll be send thoughts and prayers his way. What was the name of the show he was on?
